Clover Flex Use Cases
Pay at the Table Restaurants:
For restaurants that offer pay-at-the-table services, Clover Flex provides a secure way to accept payments without compromising customer service or security. The device features NFC technology, allowing customers to simply tap their card or phone against it to complete their transactions quickly and securely. It also supports EMV chip cards for added protection against fraudsters. The device boasts an intuitive touchscreen, allowing restaurant personnel to navigate menus and take orders without grappling with paper slips or cash registers.
Retailers for "Line Busting":
To efficiently manage long lines during peak shopping, retailers should consider using the Clover Flex as part of their point-of-sale system. Its compact size allows multiple stations to be set up throughout the store, reducing wait times by enabling customers to check out from any location - no matter how busy. With lightning-fast processing speeds, the device can process transactions quickly, boosting sales during busy periods without customers waiting in long lines.
Delivery drivers often deal with large amounts of cash when delivering goods or services - which is time-consuming and risky if not managed properly. Cash can easily be lost or, worst yet, stolen. Driving with lots of cash may even put the driver at risk.
The Clover Flex can eliminate these risks by electronically accepting payments and tips, allowing for more efficient delivery and a safer driver experience.
Like delivery drivers, food truck operators face challenges when accepting payments while operating in various locations.

Plus, with real-time sales data reporting, the Clover Flex provides valuable insights to food truck owners, allowing them to track their business performance and make informed decisions.
Using Clover Flex for food trucks can streamline payment processing, increase efficiency, and provide a safer, more secure driver experience. By focusing on creating delicious meals for their customers, food truck operators can trust that their payments are secure and their business insights are readily available.
Off-site events or festivals:
Many small business owners attend off-site events or festivals to sell products or services. However, these events come with their own set of challenges when it comes to accepting payments.
The Clover Flex allows businesses to accept payments and tips electronically, eliminating the need for cash transactions. This can enhance safety and reduce the risk of lost or stolen cash, providing peace of mind for business owners.
With the Clover Flex's compact design, businesses can quickly bring it to off-site events and festivals, allowing them to accept customer payments anywhere. With real-time sales data reporting, businesses can track their sales performance and make informed decisions to optimize their operations.
By using Clover Flex at off-site events or festivals, businesses can streamline payment processing, enhance safety, and provide a more convenient customer experience. The device's portability and real-time sales data reporting features make it an ideal solution for small business owners looking to grow their business beyond their brick-and-mortar location.
The Clover Flex is the perfect solution for small business owners interested in saving on payment processing costs. In addition to regular merchant account pricing, our Merchant Surcharge Program allows business owners to eliminate all credit card processing expenses.
With this program, the Clover POS will automatically add a 3% surcharge to each transaction paid with a credit card, eliminating your processing costs. While Flex will surcharge credit card transactions, it will not surcharge debit card transactions. They will remain free to the customers.
